Q & A

What is the best stress release?

I love to run. At the beginning of a run, thousands of thoughts float through my mind. By the end of my run, I have created a To Do List and an I Don’t Care Anymore List.

What would you tell your teenage self?

I would tell my teenage self not to race toward success. You are that! You demand that, not only in whom you’re becoming but in who you are now. Enjoy now! You don’t have to work so hard! Believe it! See it! Manifest it!

What has the pandemic taught you about yourself?

The pandemic taught me that I have no limits and, more importantly, to enjoy life now. No matter what it looks like!
